This could be depression but I'm not completely sure. She has some symptoms of depression, but she could just be very emotional

it could be depression as it has phases of high tension.
phases and such but before checking that she may try to make a blood check for hormones. my mom had a hyperactive thyroid that made her hypernervous.
since surgery it turned back to normal.

mental disorders are hard to cure maybe simpler to eliminate possible physical causes before going that direction

It seems like anxiety. I bet you anything that's what it is. In fact, this doesn't strike me personally as being depression as much. I feel like if she's really sad it COULD be possible, but anxiety can cause sadness too, so IMO, as someone who has dealt with both severe anxiety and severe depression, this sounds like a possible anxiety disorder.

Doubt it is depression, if it was depression she wouldn't be nervous, she'd instead be sad most if not all the time without being able to enjoy anything not even her hobbies or things she used to enjoy, also she'd have a strong sense of hopelessness most of the time and uninterested in life. She must be suffering from anxiety.

There's more to depression than just being sad, I feel like it could be anxiety.

There is no where near enough information here for anyone to tell if there's something wrong. If you're concerned talk to her about it.
